In 2016, Democratic millionaires (and even billionaires) donated boat loads of cash to the campaign of Hillary Clinton.
They were convinced she would defeat Donald Trump.
Fast forward to today, and many of those same wealthy donors aren’t so quick to throw their money towards Trump’s challengers in 2020.
Because some are finally admitting that the current Democratic Party has ZERO chance of beating Trump in 2020.
Just ask Democratic billionaire and Black Entertainment Television (BET) co-founder Robert L. Johnson.
As first reported by The Daily Wire, Johnson thinks the Democratic Party has gone too far to the Left… and it’s a recipe for a Trump re-election in 2020.
During a recent interview with CNBC, Johnson (America’s first black billionaire) said that the current Democratic Party has no chance of beating President Trump in 2020 and that some serious housecleaning is in order.
"The party in my opinion, for me personally, has moved too far to the left," Johnson said, adding that he will not be supporting a particular candidate at this time.
According to Johnson, a Democrat will only be able to take the White House from Donald Trump if they move to the center, otherwise they will propose radical programs that will not resonate with the American people. Since Trump has not lost his base, he posits, the Democrats will have to move beyond the extremism of the primaries if they are to win the general election.
"I think at the end of the day, if a Democrat is going to beat Trump, then that person, he or she, will have to move to the center and you can’t wait too long to do that,” he said. "The message of some of the programs that Democrats are pushing are not resonating with the majority of the American people."
Johnson even went where no Democrat seems to want to go… he admitted that Trump has made the U.S. economy great!
"I think the economy is doing great, and it’s particularly reaching populations that heretofore had very bad problems in terms of jobs and employments and the opportunities that come with employment,” Johnson said. "African-American unemployment is at its lowest level… I give the president a lot of credit for moving the economy in a positive direction that’s benefiting a large amount of Americans."
